10 – 14 October 2022: Startech 2022

From 10 to 14 October 2022, Startech 22 will take place at the Kiruna Space Campus of the Luleå University of Technology.

Startech aims at coaching students towards the spirit of innovation. 20-25 selected students from all UNIVERSEH partner universities will be mixed to create five multidisciplinary teams with broad knowledge and competence. All teams will select an idea that uses Earth observation data (e.g. a new application to help to monitor the gas pollution in the seas).

The Startech programme is designed as an intensive one week experience; students are expected to develop their idea into a marketable prototype/product/project. During the week, teams go through lectures, interact with business coaches and experts to build a set of crucial skills when creating new projects, new research directions or a new company. Lectures include creativity, business models, canvas, lean startup, IP, pitching, etc. Throughout the process, students are accompanied by teachers and by several experts. At the end of the training, the students pitch their project in front of a jury.
